Post: RE: Mounting Mantel Board on Fireplace Surround

How about sliding dovetails.  I would probably do 2, fairly wide (at least 1") dovetails, one up each leg of the mantel.  I wouldn't use one continuous dovetail strip, I have tried them and they are t...

Post: RE: Mounting Mantel Board on Fireplace Surround

I see a number of shows, including Stone House Revival, where drill holes in the back-side of the mantel and slide it onto headless lag screws.  I believe they use some sort of adhesive to hold the ma...

Post: RE: Notching Studs for Romax

If it was me, I'd cut out the drywall, drill the studs, install 1/4" backer board and then the tile.  If the tile is going wall-to-wall, I would cut out a strip of drywall, drill, wire, put back a str...

I think that you will get a better edge with a router.  I would start with a rabbet bit, ake a couple passes with that, then switch to a template bit to complete.  Trim the corners with a chisel.

If you want to do beaded face frames, Kreg makes an excellent system. The setup has to be precise, but when you get it dialed in, the results are amazing.

I replaced my General 350 with a SS, solely for safety reasons. I am well into retirement and there are some days when I am just not as sharp anymore, I like having an additional level of safety.
